The annual Cottesloe Sculptures by the Sea opened on Friday and will be on for two weeks, so make sure to ride, walk, drive or train it up the coast on the long weekend.
This is a show by Australian and international artists that compliments the all Western Australian Sculpture@Bathers in Fremantle well.
We should consider ourselves lucky to have two outstanding beach art shows at the same time.
Congratulations to Fremantle artist Olga Cironis who won the $ 10,000 scholarship prize at the Cottesloe Sculptures by the Sea!
Olga will be at the show weaving 400 metres of human hair together, so go and visit her.
It is not often I encourage people to leave Fremantle for distant shores, but the Cottesloe SCULPTURES BY THE SEA exhibition is well worth hopping on the bike or train for, or driving your car over.
There are some outstanding art works there, some quirky ones and a few not that great, but overall it is a very good show of three dimensional art.
I thoroughly enjoyed walking around early this morning before the big crowds arrive and probably will have to go back for another look in different afternoon light.
